Running a large server room with numerous racks and a large number of servers requires a lot of technical support to keep everything up and running. However, while most people tend to think the technicians have a separate keyboard, mouse and monitor for each server, this is not the case. What you will find is that they use a KVM switch that allows them to use a single set of monitor, mouse and keyboard to access and control a set number of servers.
The KVM Switch is Far More Cost Effective
When you look at the big picture you can easily see where having to buy a complete setup for each server would not be very cost effective, not to mention the incredible amount of space it would take for all of this equipment. By using a KVM switch you can reduce the expense, the clutter and of course the utility bills and make life much easier for the technicians.
